Tour de France Tour operators

Postby martc101 » Sat Nov 24, 2012 10:26 pm

Hi, I am investigating possible tour companies for a package tour of the Alps stages of next year’s le Tour.
I have received the information for Healthwise active http://hwactivetravel.com/events/cyclin ... vence-alps
Thomson’s http://www.thomsonbiketours.com/trips/T ... cling.html and
Peloton tours http://www.pelotoncyclingtours.com/index.php?page_id=37
and wondered if anyone has had experience of touring with any of these operators.
I was also looking at some of the local French companies:
Cyclomundo http://www.cyclomundo.com/alps_gfy.html and
Discover France http://tour-de-france-tours.com/
and wondered if anyone has had an experience of using French based operators for the Tour.
Welcome any reviews or suggestions
Cheers.

I just did a tour through the French Alps with Thomson, would recommend them without hesitation. Ran a fantastic tour.

Edit: it wasnt a tdf tour though.

I've just signed up with Thomson's bike tours for next year. Doing both their Pyrenees & Alps Tours. Lucky I have 8 months to get fit!

Hi, this is Toni Folque, representing Thomson Bike Tours in Australia. Just moved from Barcelona to south of Sydney recently so
to make sure more aussies join our great and challenging tours. Whitey, were you with me and Peter in the Alps or
with Eric and Sergi?
Feel free to make any consultation via this forum or on my email: [email protected]
cheers
